    geo weight

    The GeO is about 118# when stripped of all the car junk.. The Cam 100 engine is based on the Honda 4cyl I belive the Civic. The Geo / Suzuki can be found in the Suzuki Samorei, or the Chev Geo.

    jdhog, forget the MG engine, it weighs a ton and puts out too little power.
    I have over 30 years experience on these cars (amongst others).

    As far as I can tell there are two presently supplying redrives and 1.3L engines ( in North America). And one getting ready to do so.

    The getting ready to do so is: http://www.b2engines.com/index.html They are a more turn key high performance alternative. As well as untested.

    The one in Canada is: http://www.airtrikes.net They do not use any torsional dampeners, but seem to do ok.

    The one I'm banking on is: http://www.raven-rotor.com/
    They are proven, have torsional dampeners and also offer a sideways engine to fit in a Rotax 912 footprint.

    Here is a rather long explanation of the Raven 1300SVS 4 clyinder Geo engine weight. Read from bottom to top. But 210 lbs for engine coolant, radiator, mount and prop. Also good info on the real 912 weight.



    Re: [FlyGeo] Re: 1.3 all up weight

    Kevin



    Checked with a couple other manufacturers at Sun¹n Fun and Oshkosh a few years back about the exact weight of the 912. They said removing the
    complete engine from their plane with radiator its dry weight is 163-165 lbs. not counting engine mount. Add about the same amount of coolant and oil, similar prop, about the same weight for an engine mount and you will see why we say we are 18 to 20 lbs. heavier than the 912.
